March 3, 2016 — The Rendez-Vous with French Cinema starts today!
Each year Lincoln Center showcases the best in contemporary French cinema. This year they are featuring Gérard Depardieu, Isabelle Huppert (who will be there in person) in Valley of Love.
Also being screened is Julie Delpy’s Lolo, which has been picking up rave reviews from critics everywhere. Scott Meslow of The Week calls it one of the movies you should see in March; Indiewire calls it one of the “13 Indies You Must See;” and New York.com includes it in their list of “15 things Not to Miss in New York in March.”
Lolo will screen on March 8 and 9 — call for times. Julie Delpy and Composer Mathieu Lamboley will be available for a Q&A on March 8; Julie Delpy will introduce the film on March 9.
“Writer, director, actor, composer: Julie Delpy is one of current French cinema’s great renaissance talents. In her new movie, a four-string black comedy that develops on the thinking at work in her recent 2 Days in New York, a world-weary fashionista (Delpy) finds her happy new relationship with a divorced, slightly unpolished computer programmer (Dany Boon) threatened by the machinations of her wheeling, malevolent son (Vincent Lacoste). Delpy is a filmmaker with a wise, prickly comic sensibility, and her movies often slide—like screwball comedies—from cerebral verbal banter to outright farce. Lolo is no exception, although it’s also her darkest, riskiest, and most startling movie to date. A FilmRise release.”
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting Rendez-Vous With French Cinema which runs from March 3 – March 13 at Lincoln Center, 165 W. 65th St.
